46 Switch games represented at TGS 2017 this year

Posted on September 21, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in 3DS, News, Switch, Wii U

A list has been published showing how many games each major gaming platform has on display at the Tokyo Game Show this year. Switch is included, and it looks like the console has a pretty good showing.

46 different Switch games can be found at TGS. As the system’s first year, that isn’t too shabby. Indie games and other smaller eShop titles are definitely a factor, but those types of projects shouldn’t be ignored.

We’re also able to see that 3DS representation is down heavily from 36 games in 2016 to just 9 this year. Wii U has also gone down from 13 to 3, though that’s hardly surprising.

    The switch has been out for 6 months , i would say its quite a accomplishment to already have that much games to show at tgs

    36 to 9 for the 3ds… is near its end…? 🙁

    I hope this is the beginning of something and not the peak: PS4 is still far away with 112 games.

      PS4 had only 22 games in 2013, and 42 in 2014. 46 in its first 6 months is not bad at all for Switch, as the install base expands, so will the games, and I wouldn’t be shocked if Switch is higher in 3 years.

    That Wii U list though lol

  • People definitely like to discount e-shop and indie games. I hope that dwindles with Switch players, but I expect it to persist with the anti-Switch crowd. (Which is worse, because PS4 gets these kind of games as well, and they can be just as good/high quality as any other game.)

    That’s a great number, and I can’t wait to see how big it is next year, and what else is to come.

    I’m not going to hold my breath for Nintendo’s TGS showing. You only have to watch Nintendo’s E3 and those Nintendo Directs to see what’s released for Nintendo consoles. Still dragging on with the 3DS to make ends meet, it’s time to ditch it and go 100% with the Switch. The likes of Wave Race, 1080, Stunt Race FX and Pilotwings are well over due.
